Picture of the Holy Land in Adomnán's De locis sanctis
Falátková, Michaela ; Kubín, Petr (advisor) ; Nechutová, Jana (referee) ; Bláhová, Marie (referee)
The presented thesis deals with the work On the Holy Places (De locis sanctis) compiled by the monk and abbot Adomnán of Iona (624-704). Adomnán's work provides evidence of the unknown Gallic pilgrim Arculf about his journey to the Holy Land. Furthermore, Adomnán's text represents a complex historical source about the character of the early medieval pilgrimage during the second half of the 7th Century. Moreover, On the Holy Places offers extensive description and topography of the holy places associated with Jesus Christ's life, passion, and resurrection, hence oscillates between itinerary and hagiography. From the perspective of literary history, Adomnán's narrative has a deep-rooted background within the tradition, nevertheless, provides a significant number of innovations beyond the traditional views. The thesis contextualised Adomnán's text within the 7th-Century Iro-Scottish literary production, i.e. introduces Adomnán's new concept of pilgrimage narrative. Moreover, the text presents the first translation of On the Holy Places from Latin into Czech along with extensive commentary. The historical-critical method of Classic and Medieval studies, together with synchronous and diachronic analysis, was used. The detailed commentary contextualised Adomnán's work within the archaeological excavations...

The Sedlec region in the 10th - 13th century and German influence in the region
Bělohlávek, Miloš ; Kubín, Petr (advisor) ; Doležalová, Eva (referee)
The bachelor thesis deals with the special status of the Sedlec region (later called Loket region) as a specific region at the borders between Bohemian and German countries in the historical period from the end of the 10th century, which was the first time the region was mentioned - specifically in connection with the establishment of the Prague bishopric, until the beginning of the 14th century, when also the neighboring Cheb region has become a permanent part of the Bohemian lands. The thesis puts great emphasis on the period when the Sedlec area was removed from the Czech duke's jurisdiction and was affiliated to the Holy Roman Empire. Especially it describes the region in this period, with respect to the German colonization and the strong influence of German monasteries and minor imperial nobility. The confrontation of the Slavic population and the Germanic colonists significantly determined the further development of the region and its character, so the theses also follow the gradual cultural and linguistic assimilation of the Slavic population.
